My weekend is off to a good start! I spent the afternoon shopping for fabric and made a quick detour away from my neighborhood quilt shops (mainly, the Quilting Loft) and into West Seattle, where the charming West Seattle Fabric Co. boutique is. I’ve been meaning to go for a while now and kept oogling over articles about it online. The shop owner, Monica Skov, opened the West Seattle Fabric Co. in December of 2010. This charming store is a hit! …from the moment I entered her shop to the time I left, there were enthusiastic quilters in and out of her shop excited to start new projects. Monica was cool and let me snap some photos (thanks again Monica!) to share with all of you. 🙂 So here’s some eye candy!
I couldn’t stop looking at this cute setup mainly featuring the Sun kissed collection by Moda (same collection I used to make the Quilt for Japan). You can’t quite tell from this picture, but those are sparkly fabrics by Michael Miller on the first shelf! I can’t get enough of those.
There’s lots of different styles and colorways of fabric, so you’ll be sure to find prints that appeal to you (i sure did!).
Lots of notions (the sewing necessities) and a decent collection of books. Though the shop is smallish, I managed to walk around it about 5 times because there’s a lot to look at!
It’s located on 2210 California Ave in West Seattle. You can’t miss the bright pink and blue canopy!
I left with a bag full of goodies wrapped beautifully. I felt like I left with a birthday present 🙂 I’m loving the skull-themed prints by Alexander Henry…I bought some last week from the Quilting Loft, and found the one above at the West Seattle fabric Co.
And I couldn’t leave without this adorable collection called Delilah by Free Spirit. I bought 6 fat quarters (great price, the least expensive I’ve seen) and a yard.
I’m happy to know there’s another great fabric boutique in Seattle. If you’re from around here, I recommend you check it out! If you’re not, you can oogle over these photos. 😉 And for all of you avid quilters/crafters, I urge you to support your local small business owners by buying local from boutiques like this!
